  • Troop III Health: +350%
  • Gathering Speed Blessing: +500%
  • Rally Gift Tile Gathering Speed
  • 30 Skill Points
  • 2,300,000,000 Power

Hero 65

When your hero reaches 65 you will enjoy a couple of great skills in addition to a grand total of 130 points additional points for your hero’s skill tree.  These skills include:

  • Troop Attack II - 500% attack
  • Resource Send Capacity - economy side, cool if you are trying to move some massive resources quickly.
  • Core Crafting luck - increase your core power when crafting!

This hero level will provide additional power to your hero attack stats and core stats.  Furthermore, it allows a rally leader to significantly increase the stats of their current core sets.

Best Hero 65 Skill Tree Allocation

You should now have 630 points if you have Gymnos 23 or a bit less if you have something lower than this.  So, what can we do with these new added skill points?

Base Set Bonus

A skill that is deep down the right side of the Hero Skill Tree is Base Set Bonus.  This skill increases the set bonus you receive when using sets with a base set bonus from any gear set including core sets.

At Hero 60 it was not always best to sacrifice points in the left side of the tree for Base Set Bonus.  The determining factor was whether the base set of the set you were using added more value to your overall build.  

However, with the 25 added skill points from Hero 61 you can now skill base set bonus without sacrificing any points in other offensive skills down the left side.

You receive 25 extra skill points when you reach Hero 61.  This brings total Hero points to 515, 520, 525 depending on whether you have Gymnos 21, 22, or 23 respectively.  

How Effective is Base Set Bonus Skills?

Base set bonus skill adds up to 25% bonus to your core set’s base set bonus.  For Nike this means 43.75% additional specific troop defense debuff which you can't even get in the skill tree any place else!

For the Poseidon core set, this provides an additional 20% to ranged attack.  For Ares core set, 40% troop attack debuff.  Therefore, Base Set Bonus is generally desired for these newer core sets.  With hero 61+ it’s a no-brainer, skill Base Set Bonus people.

What About These Other Skills from Hero Level Upgrades?

Hero 65 unlocks the skill Troop Attack which adds 500% attack.  This is clearly a must have for Hero 65.  However, can we still take the Base Set Bonus skill?  Yes, you can.  Let's take a look.

Base Set Bonus skill requires 149 points.  Next, we will put only the minimum amount of points in each of the following categories, for a total of 361 more points or 510 total points:

  • Infantry Attack I
  • Infantry Attack II
  • Enemy Troop Health Debuff
  • Enemy Defense Debuff
  • Altar Boost Attack
  • Full Set Bonus
  • Rally Attack Bonus

This setup is for an Infantry core rally leader.
Now, 10 points in Troop Health on Tile 520 allows us to move on to Unlock Ransom, 530.  I assume 10 more points will allow us on to Unlock All March Recall, 540. Now we need 10 points in Troop Defense III, 550 total points.

We are now to Troop Attack II.  Let’s add the 50 points to this skill for maximum Troop Attack!  600 Total points!  We have 25 points left to place wherever we would like!  This will allow for placement for Ranged Core sets or Cavalry easily.

So, at Hero 65 it is possible and highly recommended to skill Base Set Bonus and Troop Attack II.  The additional 30 points should be placed in the specific troop health of the type you are sending with your core set to increase the penetration effectiveness of your rally.

Hero 65 and Wonder Leaders

As a Wonder rally leader you must focus on attack and health of all three troop types.  Therefore, it is not recommended to sacrifice so many points to gaining the Base Set Bonus.  Those points are best spent in Troop Attack and Troop Health along the left side of your tree.  However, what is still recommended is Troop Attack II that adds 500% attack to all your troops!

Hero Level 61

Level 61 requires 7.5 billion experience, 1500 new Heroic Medals and provides the following new skills:

  • Troop Health on Tile - 150%
  • Hero Construction Boost - economy side of the tree and will provide construction speed boost for your alliance mate.  Unfortunately, the boost is not stackable.
  • Treasury Deposit Boost - also on the economy side of the tree and provides a significant boost to the gold you can earn from Treasury Deposits 300k or more gold.

  1. Why does the title say medal and Xp requirements? Where does it talk about Xp requirements? Should change the title or post the info…

  2. Ovako igram igricu game of war, već 2mjeseca .igrica mi je mrak. Međutim došao sam do dijela gdje sam upgrairao stronghold na 10level. Sad mi više ne piše šta moram graditi nego da trebam započeti neki event, a ja neznam kako ,dali može pomoć ,jer zbilja želim nastaviti dalje. . Hvala..

  3. I have 1trillion xp points to use but I only need 2000billion to reach my hero’s next level, will the 800billion carry over or are the lost?

  4. This game is just the most expensive game that has never been done …..use your money for good things don’t waste it on that game …it’s a never end games …endless you are a billionaire and you don’t care about your money ….don’t spend to be on the top just wait to have it on the good moment …actually it is impossible to burn a player endless he’s in crap gear and you don’t need to be max for for that ….just use what you have and enjoy without spending …or just be a trap….don’t spend 1k dollar per month for that…burn them immediately it’s the same result

  5. Hero 72: 1,150,000 Heroic Insignia, not 1,000,000 Heroic Insignia

  6. The problem now that i have a tons of Heroic Medals with I will never use anymore !
    I hope that they came up with such a building to convert them to Heroic Insignia !
    As they did for T5 troops 🙂

  7. I have reached Hero level 70 and notice my Hero XP is still growing has anyone heard anything about hero level 71 and higher?

    • Haven’t heard anything yet. I haven’t been able to reach level 70 because the game is asking me for 100,000 heroic “insignias” to unlock that level. How were you able to get them? I haven’t found any reward that has them

  8. Hero 66 Rally Gift Tile Gathering Speed – can someone elaborate on what is a Rally Gift?

    I was thinking perhaps it’s a alternate name for Alliance Gift Tile or maybe Mythic Tile… basically want to know will it increase overall gathering speeds on all tiles.
    – Because I figured I’d use the Pegasus gear to start collecting our gift tiles from now on and if this would help speed things up I’d add it for that one use.

    • It comes with some packs, instead of the regular gift tile. The main differences is a hero must be on the tile, and only the person leading the rally on the tile gets anything, except for resources gathered; which depends on the number of troops,and the load capacity, you have on the tile.

  9. Anyone know what the prisoner bonus multiplier is supposed to do? I assumed it would increase the troop attack given for having a hero in your prison, but it does not.

  10. Ok so to get to hero level 70 your going to have to buy 48 of the hero packs with the 50,000 hero medals. That’s $4,800 dollars. I believe MZ has finally gone insane.

    • Check out the superwonder, many have done this already. Game for bored millionaires only…….

    • I noticed you just posted this 2 weeks ago so it’s fairly new. You don’t have to spend $4800 to reach it. You aren’t counting that when you purchase a $99 pack you will also get heroic medals in some form in several other methods: gold chest in left corner , inferno event secret level 4 prize and depending on the event if there is a hero level event then you can win more.
      I’m not a big spender by any means. I’ve played since June 2015 about 16 months, didn’t start actually growing until months ago when packs exploded lol. Anyway I bought the daily bonus club pack in September because I felt overall it’s a great deal when you Total up what you receive from the pack and the daily bonus total gifts.
      At that time:
      9k heroic medals – x5 = 45k
      12M VIP x5 = 60M
      240B RSS x5 = 1.2B
      30K speed up x5 = 150K
      15K hammer x5 = 75K
      20K time orb x5 = 100K
      – with all this I was able to complete tons of research, which won more medals and stuff in special Hero level up events.
      I went from 1.2B power to 12B.

      Renewed DBC in October
      Currently offers me:
      54M VIP x 5 = 270M
      480B RSS x5 = 2.4 trillion
      30K hammers x 5 = 150K
      15K medals x5 = 75k
      60K time orbs x 5 = 300k
      60K speed up x 5 = 300k.

      Since September I went from hero 56 & Vip19 to currently hero 66 & Vip24. And I only bought 2 $99 packs. But I made sure the bonus stuff was in sync with various events. Now I won’t buy again for months.

      • And I forgot to mention that on 4 occasions Athena gave me 10K heroic medals as a thank you for being a daily bonus club member.
        When I got that I figured I’d do hero research and just hunt monsters with a higher power but now I’ve finished the Wild Tree, Set bonus tree, defense tree, to level 14 on March tree and only 5 things left on the Hero Tree. But now I can finally not be shielded 24/7. Even if I’m zeroed I have resources and speed ups to rebuild lol

        I’ll never catch up or compete with the Bigs but

        • Thats awesome! Good job! Continue to keep playing your own Game of War and reaching your goals! We are here to help! Don’t forget to protect your city at all times though. Rally leaders get stronger everyday and will come hunting you ;).

      • Yeah and now 4 months later mz will allow a new player with the purchase of just 2 packs, get all the free research and vip27 hero 75. sure makes all of us spenders feel like buttwipes for spending over the past 2 years. I guess a refund is out of the question

  11. MZ has not paid out the 9/18/16 gauntlet reward of 1 million gold reward for scoring a point during the event, I made sure I screen shot my points and monster kills but MZ still hasn’t paid the reward. Anyone else having problems getting the reward?

  12. If you are stuck at 62 awaiting medals, does the xp from quests save or do you lose them?

  13. For hero lvl65, 50,000 Heroic Medals are required in addition to the 300 billion Hero XP points.

  14. Many thanks for the lesson!

  15. While I’m locked out of level 62 until i get more medals, does it store the xp im collecting to be retroactively applied when it’s unlocked? I’m getting xp every day, but since my bar is full on level 61 and all i need are the medals to unlock 62, where is my xp going in the meantime?

    I agree with all the other comments regards MZ getting greedy, I have complained suggest everyone does !!!
    Lets see if they listen!!

  17. Hero 65 doesn’t show the number of heroic medals needed? Wondering how many is needed?

  18. Anyone know how Resource Receive Capacity works for hero LV 62? Can’t seem to get it to work after I apply skill points… Trying to receive rss much faster from friends.

  19. Well, the posts just about “say it all”.
    People aren’t “excited”.
    They’re pissed off.
    Hero level used to have “strategy” for trying to earn as much XP as you could in battles, crafting, etc.
    Now, it’s strictly money. Even if you earn a ton of XP, you can’t unlock the next level without medals.
    And, if you ever want to fully “play the game”, you want to grow to be a rally leader, which means you HAVE to keep spending. 500% attack boost difference at Level 65 means a level 61 is “toast” if trying to do wonder battles.

    I can’t spend that type of money, so I’m debating what to do next….

    • You are correct, cannot compete in wonder unless you are hero 65, then what will MZ do if I do pay the $5000to $6000 in packs? Make hero 70. I’m full research full building 23 yet I cannot compete in wonder unless I cough up another $5000. After this kvk, if Heros 65 dominate I’m cashing out

  20. You mentioned advice on allocating hero skills for traps but never did 🙁

  21. How does the ransom feature work? I say 50mil gold? They pay and get hero back right away? Really only seems beneficial for super wonder.

    • It is based off their hero level I believe. The higher the hero the more ransom you can demand. It is not an entry method like bounty. Its is set amount. Not sure what hero 65 ransom will be but 64 is 1.3m I believe

  22. I think MZ has gotten so out of control with the updates, it is worse now than ever before. I was spending about $500.00 to $1,000.00 per week to keep up and even I’m done spending. I can’t believe that this business model is working for them. It seems more people are leaving then staying. They have a great game and I’d love to keep playing but not at this expense and when I an see everyone is leaving.

  23. It’s amazing how very expensive it is to reach hero 65, you have failed to mention that and the countless packs needed.
    Mz might as well change Game of War to Game of Spenders. Pack infernos weren’t good enough for them and all the upgrades, cores they keep pushing out. Not surprised when sh 24 and the amount of rss and speeds it takes to do buildings. SMH at MZ.

  24. I feel that MZ knows and accepts the fact that there will be constant attrition in the game and people will quit continuously. Therefore in order for MZ to take notice and relent with these constant releases at ever more expensive prices, an all out boycott of buying packs will send them a clear message…my kingdom -571 will be boycotting this weekend at the Wonder. Please encourage everyone you know to join us in this protest. MZ will never change their ways unless many kingdoms join together. Spread the word- stop buying packs!

  25. lol, it seems they do not mind losing players, the figures are much more than a normal person can do, if you are the son of a prince I congratulate you and enjoy the game. for the rest the only option is to abandon or sell our bodies. impossible!

  26. Why have you not mentioned the new gold packs now required to upgrade? 99$ to upgrade to 61 198$ to upgrade to 62 and so on.

    • I thought I was just seeing things when 199.99$ was showed upp for a pack.

    • A –

      You can’t post the cost of how much it will be to upgrade because that depends on what items MZ sells in the packs and that changes day to day. Right now it’s about $2,000.00 USD to reach hero 65 with the current packs.

      • You can figure it out pretty easy, and your “about” is way off…more than double that number. Which was clearly enough to piss off some of the major players and biggest killers in the game as they’ve quit. Wtg MZ

        • $5000 for lvl65 – it will be $10,000 for lvl70

          Those major players that you say quit… nah, they got laid off or fired… watch for those accounts to make the headlines on the marketing publications as a new record zero’ing. It’s all to keep the smoke and mirrors show going.

          Enjoy the ride!

        • 59 packs to 65 with current packs

    • I’m lvl 62 and haven’t spent any where near that.
